The Peterborough Rotary Club hosted the Avenue A Teen Center Creative Writing Club at their weekly meeting today.
The Avenue A Teen Center in Antrim, a division of The Grapevine, is home to the National Endowment for the Arts award-winning WriteOut! Project. Teens from the Writing Club read from their published Anthology, I Need To See This On Paper, and welcomed questions about their objective: to see that every teen in NH foster care receives a copy.
Writing Club Advisor Cynthia West spoke about the variety of free, volunteer-led programs offered at the Teen Center and what the community can do to join in its continuing success.
